Cub Camp Summer 18

Posted on July 20th, 2018 by Steve McCarthy

The Crays Pond campsite near Goring was the fitting location for 3rd Reading’s 2018 Summer Cub Camp – originally founded in the 1920s, the picturesque location was the perfect setting for over 40 Cubs to discover some of the more traditional scouting skills, such as pioneering and camp fire cooking, as well as to become acquainted with a variety of more contemporary ones, such as circus skills and bicycle pump rocket blasting – perhaps not surprisingly, a firm favourite! Slathered in sun tan lotion to cope with tremendous weekend weather, the Cubs revelled in the camaraderie and the challenges. 2018 Summer Cub Camp was a tremendous experience for young and old hands alike.

Cubs win Dragon Boating Event

Posted on July 1st, 2018 by Steve McCarthy


It was a fabulous morning by the river, followed by a brilliant win at lunchtime. We were not sure whether we had won and had to wait for the photo finish to be checked.

The results were:

Race 1, Boat 3, Finish 2nd

Race 2, Boat 1, Finish 1st

Race 3, Semi Final, Boat 4, Finish 2nd

Race 4, Final, Boat 4, Finish 1st!

The Cubs adopted Woody, the dog, as their mascot and motivation for winning.

There were only 9 Cubs in the boat.

The organizers praised Reading 3rd especially, highlighting their behaviour, which was polite and attentive. That’s always good to hear.
